Pioneer Monument

Located in Civic Center in downtown Denver, the Pioneer Monument Fountain was a part of Mayor Robert W. Speer's City Beautiful movement. Originally sculpted by Frederick MacMonnies in 1911, sculptures of a prospector, a hunter and a gun-toting mother with her child surround the central figure of Kit Carson on horseback.
